Neighbours legends return to soap to film final episodes 37 years on – looking VERY different

THE Neighbours cast have reunited to film the soap's final episode 37 years on – and they all look VERY different.

It was announced earlier this year that the much-loved, long-running show – based in Australia – would finally be coming to a close.

The soap, set in the fictional town Ramsay Street in Melbourne, will see some of its original stars make a return for the finale.

Among them is Hollywood legend Guy Pearce, 54, who rose to fame playing Mike Young in the Australian TV series.

He is set to be joined by a long list of the original stars, including Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan, for the farewell show later this year.

Today, the stars all came together on the set of the soap, where they were seen smiling and laughing together for the first time in years.

Among them were Ian Smith – who played Harold Bishop – and Lucinda Cowen, who was best known for playing Melania Peterson.

Goeff Payne, who played Clive Gibbons and first appeared on the show in 1986, also posed alongside the Ramsay Street sign.

While Stefan Dennis, who portrayed Paul Robinson, held up the clapper board ahead of one of his final scenes.

Elsewhere, Paul Keane, who played Des Clarke, and Annie Jones, best known for being Jane Harris, smiled and laughed with their co-stars.

It comes after the Neighbours bosses revealed they had secured some of the soap's most popular characters for the big finale.

Representing the 1980s alongside Kylie and Jason who played fan favourites Scott and Charlene Robinson, are Mark Little, 62.

Neighbours legend Ian Smith, 83, will be returning as Harold Bishop and he couldn’t be more proud to be a big part of it all as the show comes to an emotional end after 37 years.

Ramsay Street hunk Daniel MacPherson, 42, who played Joel Samuels for four years from 1998, is representing the 1990s. 

Melissa Bell, 49, who played Scott and Paul Robinson’s little sister Lucy, Benjamin McNair, the Kennedy’s eldest son Mal and Lesley Baker, 78, who played Toadie Rebecchi’s mum, are all returnees from the 90s era.

Natalie Bassingthwaighte, 46, who played manipulative minx Izzy Hoyland, was at the centre of some of the soap’s biggest storylines in the 00s. 

As The Sun on Sunday exclusively revealed, the hit Aussie soap, which has been on Channel 5 since 2008, was axed after the television network was unable to reach a deal with Fremantle, who they pay to make the soap.
